In a conversation with BW Wellbeing World, Deepak Mittal, Founder, Divine Soul Yoga, speaks about his organisation, the therapies and services it provides, life-altering wellness solutions, and much more. 

Please tell us about Divine Soul Yoga (DSY).

Divine Soul Yoga (DSY) founded by me in 2019 is a wellness retreat and research centre. It was launched to provide affordable holistic life-altering wellness solutions to all with the help of ancient sciences in the form of bliss meditation, divine healing, laughter and yoga therapy. With centres in Hoshiarpur, Chandigarh, New Delhi and Amsterdam, DSY has a plethora of qualified trainers and therapists to assist people to balance their mind, body and soul. The therapies have been specially curated to help people become strong enough to handle their stresses, face the challenges of life and lead a good quality of life. 

What are the therapies and services offered by DSY?   

Divine Soul Yoga offers four therapies, namely: 

Bliss meditation: A super-easy form of meditation that has its foundation steeped in love and has been hand-curated by me. 

Divine healing: An amalgamation of both ancient and modern healing techniques, this therapy helps you discover the inner strength of your soul and enhance the flow of divine energy within you that’ll attract luck, inner peace, contentment and prosperity. 

Laughter therapy: Laughter yoga or Hasya Yoga is a modern exercise that’ll induce spontaneous laughter in you, without having to wait for a reason. This is combined with fun activities and helps in relaxation. 

Yoga asana: This therapy is specially designed to distress and rejuvenate you while also making you flexible and offering clarity of mind. Advancing gradually from simple to advanced asanas, you’ll learn from our experienced, qualified yoga teachers so that you can practice it later in the comfort of your home. 

How is DSY providing holistic life-altering wellness solutions?   

We have specially curated a holistic wellness solution at DSY, combining the ancient science of life with meditation retreats surrounded by nature, boosted by authentic yoga, laughter therapy and restorative healing practices. These therapies anchor every being to a perfect equilibrium between mind, body and soul. Each weekend retreat comprises nearly three days of deep bliss meditation coupled with insightful discourses on life and how to live it mindfully, with intermittent laughter therapy and restorative healing sessions as also several recreational activities. Each of these sessions begin on Friday evenings and concludes on Monday mornings. 

Why did you feel the need to launch the wellness retreat?   

Having spent years with gurus learning meditation and studying various spiritual books, spending time in nature, I reached a state of bliss where I was happy. I intended to share the same knowledge with the world. In today’s stressful era, there’s dire need for all to attain holistic happiness. Therefore, with DSY we have created a unique concept that can help people attain clarity of mind, stress relief, healing, and sustainable happiness. 

What is your mission and vision? 

With DSY our mission is to share with people and spread the precious knowledge that I got from years of practice and experience. If certain practices are followed by people worldwide, especially the millennials, we all can attain inner peace and be in a state of eternal bliss. With daily practice of divine soul yoga meditation, one is connected to their inner self and can attain divine oneness. These experience-based discourses can empower us to create the life we love and the world we love around us.  

What are your future plans in terms of expansion and investment? 

In the current financial year we had worked on the infrastructural development and on the centres to help people deal with the after effects of Covid-19.  

We are also doing an extensive research on how the alternative therapies can prove that yoga, meditation and other alternative therapies can boost individuals' health and wellbeing. We recently took a quantum leap in anti-ageing and healing treatment by finding out that the biological ageing process may be slowed down in the human body with yoga and healing. 

For the next financial year, our goal is to strengthen our present centres and expand our presence not only in India but abroad as well. 

How does DSY address healing post-Covid? 

Strong immunity coupled with exercise and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is essential throughout the whole spectrum of human wellness. Covid has restated this fact in our life. While many people are recovering from Covid-19, one issue that many people continue to experience even after they have recovered is the weakness that the virus causes. We advise people to wait a few days, or even weeks, before beginning to practise excessive yoga asanas at our centre. Yoga and meditation when paired with healthy diet can aid in the healing process and the improvement of one’s overall health. Post Covid-19, treatments and therapies the world over are built around living a balanced stress-free life with the right amount of exercise and rest. And that’s exactly what bliss meditation and the DSY brand of yoga, laughter and other therapies are all about.  

Are there any online healing programmes?   

Yes, we do have online healing programme wherein we provide audio meditation session to people who cannot attend the physical workshop and also to those who are suffering from any critical diseases. 

We conduct four-hour online programmes every weekend which can be attended by anyone and if the people find it effective and interesting they can experience the retreat at our centres any weekend for three days.  

We have set up groups of people put together with similar problems like asthma, cancer, insomnia etc. and we offer them a set of online audio session and people are associated with us for a long time even from other countries.
